of ideas as to how to cast foreign policy in response to 9/11, such as invading iraq and people were actually advocating this well before we had the 9/11 terrorist attacks. making regime change in iraq the official policy of federal government actually occurred during the clinton administration when the iraq liberation act was passed in 1998 and signed into law by president clinton and supported by many republicans in congress. it had bipartisan support. vice president gore was a supporter, that is why i am not completely convinced that that is a counterfactual point. we have a lot of interest and people were casting around, trying to find solutions. and i do think the initialization of afghanistan was correct, whether that means we need to be there for 10 years or until afghanistan becomes connecticut, that is another matter entirely. but i think the initial strikes against those were necessary and just. but then to go out and pursue regime change, prior to 9/11, they simply casted in search of a solution to a problem with a little class saw. >> libertarianism was fiscally conservat
united on foreign policy either. but they're closer. my newshour colleague, margaret warner, is in washington and has our report about that. >> thanks maria. as the campaign hurtles toward election day, much of the foreign policy debate has focused on a few, deadly hours on an infamous date. the attack in benghazi on september 11th that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans has led to a raft of sharp questions, accusations and recriminations. >> there were many days that passed before we knew whether we knew if this was a spontaneous demonstration or actually whether it was a terrorist attack. how could we not have known? >> i immediately made sure, number one, we did everything we could to secure those americans who were still in harm's way and most importantly, that we would go after those who killed americans and we would bring them to justice and that's exactly what we are going to do. >> but whether the president wins reelection, or governor romney takes the office, a dizzying array of broader challenges awaits overseas. romney says he'd restore
on the consulate in libya is exhibit a of a failed foreign policy of leading from behind. you could see this coming for months. the people on august 145 had a meeting and said we could not withstand a coordinated attack. >> there is that and all of this sort of alarms or red lights whether it is the attack in june or whatever in terms of yurt. then stage two as to what has happened since then. it was that no one bothered to see this too niece yan guy. there is even more than that. is that the fbi did visit benghazi after the attack sometime and left. but then fast forward to last week, october 26, be foreign policy journalists go in there after people have been walking all over the place and looking at that time and they he recovered documents is that are critical to this investigation. like the fbi didn't even bother. like nobody be even cared that four americans are dead. it is a snap by investigation. four people died. you you wouldn't even see that kind of investigation in a local homicide case. >> i hope the people of the united states who really do care about our national security will unders

campaign promise of a humble foreign policy. that phrase became a bit of a punchline, given the way that the actual events of the bush presidency unfolded. but the idea of humility, i think, is the central to a secured american conservativism. novice and not just in foreign policy, but really and everything else. conservatism is, to my mind, based on two central insights. one is the idea that is more of a temperament than an ideology. the predisposition that you're not going to tear something down until you first understand why it is built. and you don't begin with the presumption that everything that has happened before you in the past, even if it may look arbitrary to you or may not immediately make intuitive sense to you, it doesn't mean that those practices were really random or arbitrary. there may have been good reasons for them. it is worth studying those reasons before you enter a report. secondly, american conservatism is dedicated to conserving a political condition tradition. this is where traditions of all kind become complicated. american conservatism is, in many respec

? it is not unusual within the traditions of our country to have the challenger engage. we do that on foreign policy. they get briefings. governor romney has been included and offered to talk to the management infrastructure. if governor romney were to win, there would be briefings before he became president. it was not a political question. i think it was a fair question. i think what we saw was governor christie's desire to show everyone how strongly he is a political, which, as you said, makes him look political. >> having worked for a lot of politicians, i don't think we should always read into everyone's motives. of yisly, there is politics. at the end of the day, chris christie is is aware of it. his number one priority has to be to people of new jersey that he is working on this. having an event with mitt romney would seem very political. i think he had the right response. maybe he was a bit more confrontational than i would be. the substance of this is the right one. the fact that we have politicians reaching across the aisle is something we should separate and start looking at their motives
the essence of what i've done. i am upset that we did not get a chance to talk about foreign policy and national security that is very threatening. we talked about which we did not talk about how to improve our military and take care of our veterans, but that is my commitment to the country that i have had in 20 digit for 22 years in uniform, and a commitment not -- i have had for 22 years in uniform, and a commitment that i take seriously. >> thank you representative that is more focused on job creation, not headlines. my background is exactly what we need to put our country back on track. i will focus on protecting the promise to our seniors and strengthening the pillars of middle-class, including medicare and medicaid, and not constantly demonizing them. my opponent called 80 members of congress communists, voted to end medicare as we know it, voted to eliminate 10 million pell grants and supported legislation that would take away the woman's right to choose. "the palm beach post" even said he is everything that is wrong with congress. i'm a former republican. i was tired of the
where there are more mexicans. you're right. this idea of focusing on foreign policy rather than on economic policy, not a good play. you saw mitt romney try to do that early on. he was in texas, for instance, early on in this race, and talking about those issues. but, again, in texas, that's a state he is going to win. have i been quite surprised that you haven't seen mitt romney out on the stump with people like susana martinez. he hasn't been out with brian sandoval. >> you've named those names. and to that point the ad i referred to might appeal to cuban americans in florida. but we know he has to extend his reach to the latino community beyond florida. with that said, i don't know what he would present on the table with immigration, but he has allies that are available to him, successful latinos within his own party that he has not reached out to broaden a message of, i don't know, economic recovery or whatever, the american dream story that susana martinez forever offered up at the rnc. >> yeah, very powerful message. >> absolutely. >> you heard from that governor. and in r
amnesia, or romnesia, however you want to speak about it, when you talk about foreign policy and they forget that it was president bush. that got us into the worst foreign policy debacle in the history of this country. we will be digging ourselves out of the hole in iraq for a long, long time. because of failed intelligence and a variety of other thins. these guys remained -- remind me of a sports announcer. you watch the beginning of the football team and the analyst says, this team is going to win for sure, this is going to be a blowout. then the game is over and they were wrong they don't mention that they were wrong and made bad predicts. that's what these guys remind me of. you guys cause halved of these problems, 3/4 of these problems and you turn around and try to blame obama. but the american people are smart they pay close attention when the time is right. that's why you see obama doing well in places like ohio. >> again, host: again, we're being joined by tim ryan, a democrat from youngstown, ohio, via skype. we go to a caller from ohio. good morning, john. caller:
this situation. host: a couple issues there. foreign policy, talk about how it is playing in ohio. guest: first sheet mentioned the issue of jobs and the economy -- she mentioned the issue of jobs and the economy. mitt romney has made a strong case about laying out why we don't have a better economy. why he would lead the country in a direction toward creating more jobs. i think that has been the strength toward his campaign. when you get into the military, that has been an issue. it was a much bigger issue in 20008. getting into the benghazi issue talking about the attack in libya has not played much in the campaign. it has been more of an issue that the pundits have battled around but you will not hear that on the campaign trail from voters and elsewhere. host: tennessee on the independent line. go ahead. caller: hi. i've been watching this for the last couple days and i wonder -- he is really trying to help the middle class. i have a business in tennessee. i think he is a good president. mitt romney already has everything. he does not know what it feels to be black or white in the middle cla
on the cold war, including mining, classicking thes of american foreign policy in the post war era inspired me to do the same with the war. it was no easy task. books on the war built library shelfs, and you can go in and see. how could they say anything new about an event studied thoroughly? what i discovered was we knew very little what was happening in hanoi in the enemy's capitol. while historians wrote countless studies on american leaders, vietnamese counterparts, especially those in the north, received shockingly little attention. how do we know so much about the american side and so little about the vietnamese? it just so happens i entered graduate school when arian kyes from the former and present communist world opened doors. i attempted what previous historians could not, to tell the story in hanoi's eyes. i wanted to answer questions that eluded previous score lars. why was the struggle an international conflict, and how did they manage to defeat the strongest superpower the world had ever seen? talk about being in the right place at the right time. although it was difficult for ov
by catherine herridge and jennifer griffin they get broken and come forward in foreign policy magazine. you expect the white house take this and comment on it. it's delay of game. you get in denials an not say why these people have an agenda. you have pundits saying it's political agenda. for the lawmakers they don't. senator lindsey graham and senator john mccain who spent a lot of time investigating and this pushing this forward because of concern for our con shuts all across the world and as well as the lives of those four, pushed forward and say waited a second, we need the people who perpetrated this imcrew. the president said he is going to bring justice to them. we got one of them. they are in to your knowledge. we can't get access to them. he penned a letter signed by the. we need in there he had some success. >> steve: absolutely. senator graham, senator chambliss from the great state of georgia they got access to the guy. you would think that the white house would want to get access to the guy. nothing. here is lindsey graham. >> this duration is -- administration is trying to run
